    the burritos on the mexican food truck are BIG, and cost very reasonable. after a few cocktails, hanging @ 1;00 in the morning, 82 degrees, is my kind of

    That is definitely the Caribbean Store next door to 2 Fools and a Bull. We've been there the last 2 years. That lady is super!

    member ~amy~ i think is familiar with the place.
    thats right... They have a map on their website. It also shows up in google maps.

    http://cafe080.com/index.php

    We LOVE 080 (it's named after the Netherlands area code). Some Dutch locals took us there on our second trip to Aruba and we've gone back on every trip. Jaap (the owner) is a lot of fun. And the fries make you oink out. No problems getting a taxi home either. Crazy music selections (in a good way). And CHEAP!! they have deals on buckets of Heinekens during happy hour. A hoot and a half!

    Like the looks of Cafe 080. Thinking of adding it to our list. Looks like I'll need google translate for the menu though?

    All the staff speak fluent English and happily make suggestions/translations. Great patio. It's not fancy... But really relaxed and fun. Something different away from the strip.

    When I looked at their facebook site I noticed the menu was in Dutch but that wouldn't keep us from trying it. It looks like a young crowd though, maybe we're too old!

    Absolutely not! We've been there many times and customers are people of all ages... families with young kids have been there! It's very European (in a good way). Those pictures on the website are just from particular party nights I think (like NYE). They get a big after work crowd too.

    I think you need to get yourself an Aruban friend my friend He or she will show you what the locals do That's the fastest way in my opinion.

    Or like crimms said: observe the locals…hehehe

    Grtz
